My ConEmu / Cmder git bash task config
  1. Open Conemu

  2. Open Settings -> Tasks or go to new tab button -> Setup tasks.

  3. Click + to add a new task

  4. Enter the name as Git Bash or whatever you like

  5. Task parameters:

     /icon "C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\etc\git.ico" /dir "C:\_git"
  6. Command:

     "C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\sh.exe" --login -i 

If you want to force your $HOME directory to be on local HD not network drive, you can do this as the command instead:

    "set PATH=C:\Users\Ndecarteret;%PATH%" & "set HOME=C:\Users\Ndecarteret" & "C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\sh.exe" --login -i

I just use the command in default "git-bash.exe" shortcut in Start Menu:

C:\some_path\git-bash.exe -new_console --cd-to-home

For right-click open in a directory with the latest version of git bash (note double set of quotes)


""C:\Program Files\Git\bin\sh.exe" -l -new_console:d:%CMDER_START%"

Copy link

For version of ConEmu 190526 i use:

  • Add New Console
  • Select "Bach"
  • {Git:Bash}

@code-bode: Sorry, it is the first time I am seeing this error. It appears to me that you are not alone with this issue. Could you verify your system paths and check this suggestion from the author of ConEmu?

@pyxelr , What I found is, if I run the app as admin then I don't get any error. Below is the setup I have. I never had this issue before, it's all started after new update.

@code-bode: This is interesting. I have actually switched for good to Windows Terminal some months ago, and found it much better than ConEmu (and even described my config here).
